Since the arrival of Bitcoin there have been many other alternative digital currencies appearing. One the most popular and successful of these, after Litecoin, is Dogecoin.
Dogecoin was created by American, Billy Markus, who wanted to create a fun digital currency. At around the same time a member of Adobe Systems marketing department in Australia, Jackson Palmer, was being encouraged by a student on Twitter to make the idea a reality. Palmer purchased the domain name dogecoin.com and when Markus saw the site he reached out to Palmer and started to create the currency.
Dogecoin was officially launched on December 8th 2013. Like Litecoin it is a scrypt based coin. It has a fast initial production schedule with approximately 100 billion coins due to be in circulation by the end of 2014. Originally this was to be the extent of production but it was later announced that the network would produce infinite coins at the rate of a further 5.2 million coins every year after.
